METAL UP YOUR PODCAST - All Things Metallica

Episode 163 - Reload vs. St. Anger

Episode Summary

Tom Kwei is the host of Alphabetallica, an all Metallica podcast of deep dives into every Metallica song in alphabetical order with a different guest each week. Tom is a good friend of ours and came on the show to discuss the ups and downs of two of Metallica's most controversial records, Reload and St. Anger. We also discuss the announcement that Hetfiled will no longer participate in meet and greets, the pros and cons of hosting Metallica podcasts, a Metal Madness segment featuring Reload and St. Anger, the AWMH charitable donation towards Covid-19 relief, WWE and the use of Metallica songs, Hetfield's microphone and updates (or lack thereof) about an official S&M2 release date. Also on this episode are two of our Quarantine Covers, weekly cover songs requested by and exclusively for patrons. This week is "Dawn Patrol" by Megadeth and "Bizarre Love Triangle" by New Order. The episode also ends with a new Clint Wells rock and roll original called "Full Stop." Enjoy!
